The Scottish Enterprise Toolkit for Innovate UK Smart application
01 December 2020
Post event comment from a delegate: "It was very good, and certainly made me think about some of the questions that we have maybe given lesser priority to, and maybe focused too much on the techy / geeky bit. When applying there is a lot of information to get over in not many words or attachments, so some of the solutions were interesting"
